The transfer market in LaLiga is in full swing, and one of the most coveted names is that of Giovani Lo Celso. Real Sociedad has its sights set on the Argentine midfielder as its great favorite to reinforce its midfield. Although Isco had been gaining prominence in Anoeta’s team, his refusal to join the club has led Real Sociedad to look for a “plan B”.
Lo Celso is also in the orbit of Villarreal CF, but Real Sociedad will not give up and will do everything possible to convince him to join their project. The decision of the man from Malaga to sign for Real Betis has prompted those led by Imanol Alguacil to consider the Argentine as a solid alternative.
Real Sociedad wants to steal a star signing from Betis
The 27-year-old is going through a difficult time at Tottenham Hotspur, where he hasn’t had many playing minutes. This has made the txuri-urdines see in him an ideal opportunity to reinforce his squad. Furthermore, David Silva’s injury has created an urgency in the search for a replacement in midfield.
Although other names such as Paulo Dybala have been considered, Lo Celso has become Real Sociedad’s main objective in this market. The San Sebastian club hopes to reach an agreement with Tottenham for around 20 million euros, although the English demand at least 25 million.
Lo Celso is a player with extensive experience in LaLiga, having gone through Villarreal CF and Real Betis. His quality and knowledge of the competition make Imanol Alguacil see him as a key player in solving problems in the core of the team.
The outcome of this situation remains to be seen, but Lo Celso continues to gain ground as the main candidate to join the ranks of Real Sociedad. With Isco out of the equation, the txuri-urdines will do everything possible to finalize the signing of the talented Argentine midfielder and thus strengthen their squad for next season. Fans are anxiously awaiting news about this possible signing that could mark a before and after in Real Sociedad’s starting eleven.
